The best Aloxe-Corton is unabashedly sauvage, and Pierre’s “old vines”—from three parcels planted in 1942, 1958, and 1971—embodies that personality full-stop. A Vosne-Romanée-like aromatic profile of enchanting spice and vibrant black fruits gives way to a palate of immense concentration but precise balance, and the tannins are well-coated but looming on the wine’s lengthy finish. A wine of stature and strength and rigor that will last for years.
